caterlippars in my parsley
I suspect these hungry guys (2 of 8 that were in our parsley plant) will, in a later life, be Black Swallowtail Butterflies – but correct us if we’re wrong. We’ve got a large Hydrangea bush next to the parsley where they’re making the “big change” – its been fun to watch -worth the parsley they’ve devoured! We live in Southern New Jersey ~ 15 miles east of Philadelphia, PA. Thanks for answering a lot of bug mysteries – we visit often.
We are happy you visit often. You are correct, these are Black Swallowtail Caterpillars, often called Parsley Worms or Carrot Worms.
